Google News Revamp

If you prefer to read the news in a browser window instead of through an RSS reader or news app, such as Newsstand or Currents, then you’ll be glad to hear that Google is in the throes of launching a mighty much-needed makeover for its official news reader mobile website.


Even though Apple’s iOS feature, Newsstand, hasn’t really taken off, Google might be looking to launch its own similar feature.

Google’s newspaper feature will be called Google Play News, and it will be come in issues and subscriptions, similar to the way content is distributed on Apple’s Newsstand.

ZinioZinio, the popular digital newsstand available to Android and iOS devices, has slashed up to 50% off its top 100 magazine subscriptions until. The deal includes titles like Macworld, GQ, Wired, Playboy, PC Magazine, and many more, and it’s valid until Monday, January 7.
